: the faa releasing a statement saying it will quote, be working with the airlines and using a comprehensive set of air traffic management tools to minimize the delays and impacts of lower staffing as we move into the busy summer season. do you find that reassuring? i'm not sure i do. good morning stuart. stuart varney from the fox business network. stuart couldn't we move money over from consultants and grants to help folks out in the control tower? >> let me spell out what we're talking about. $500 million this year for consultants. $474 million in wrapts grants to make communities more liveable and sustainable. obvious, question, martha, take some money out of the consultants bucket and put it into air traffic controlsers bucket to avoid delays. president says can't do that. i don't have the flexibility to target nonessentials. can't do it. so the republicans introduced a bill that would specifically give the president that flexibility, to avoid this pain. he threatened to veto it. that's where we stand this morning. more cuts are coming. more delays are coming. the president does not wan

"you've got to do something about it! " >> that's right. quick pop quiz. did you know the f.a.a., the people who run the air traffic system, this year they will spend $500 million on consultants, $325 million on supplies and travel, $474 million on grants to make communities more livable and sustainable. >>steve: are you saying there's money available where they don't have to furlough those guys? >> exactly. why don't you take some of that money and put it into the air traffic controllers' bucket so we don't have to have these delays? because the president says we don't have the flexibility. we cannot redirect spending. not allowed
? >> possible options for travelers now that it is day three of the faa furloughs longer airport wait time, longer tarmac wait time perhaps canceled flights all together. now they have filed a motion to place a moratorium on the rule saying airlines cannot let passengers remain on the tarmac for more than 3 hours. the motion notes 6700 flights will be delayed daily at 13 of the busiest airports now that the furloughs have started f. you add bad weather on ton of that it could get pretty ugly. if the tarmac rule does stay in place airlines may be forced to cancel flights and significantly disrupt travel plans. because they don't have the appropriate staff to go deal with the travel disruption. >> they are telling passengers there's always the bus. >> college, is it worth it or not worth it? >> there is a growing number of people saying it's not worth it. no longer guarantees success. even a good enough job where you make enough money to pay back your student loan. the average college grad is graduating with 28,000 in debt. that's why some high school grads are starting their own businesses

air traffic controllers had delays up to three hours. the faa says with fewer eyeballs, there will be better managed traffic. that's coming up next. but i wondered what a customer thought? describe the first time you met. you brought the flex in... as soon as i met fiona and i was describing the problem we were having with our rear brakes, she immediately triaged the situation, knew exactly what was wrong with it, the car was diagnosed properly, it was fixed correctly i have confidence knowing that if i take to ford it's going to be done correctly with the right parts and the right people. get a free brake inspection and brake pads installed for just 49.95 after rebates when you use the ford service credit card. did you tell him to say all of that? no, he's right though... ♪ (train horn) vo: wherever our trains go, the economy comes to life. norfolk southern. one line, infinite possibilities. oh, hi thehey!ill. are you in town for another meeting? yup, i brought my a-team. business trips add up to family time. this is my family. this is joe. hi joe! hi there! earn a t
